Sweeps Morning Matches
LAFAYETTE, April 27. - (P)-
University of Michigan's national in-
tercollegiate golf champions today
easily defeated Purdue, 16%/2-41/2,
over the West Lafayette Country Club
course for their second successive win
of the season and the first over a
Western Conference opponent.
Capt. Chuck Kocsis and Alan
Saunders were low medal men for
the meet, both registering 72's for
the distance. Par is 71. Kocsis and
Woody Malloy led the Michigan team
in points scored, neither losing a point
during the entire day's play. A hard
rain cut the meet short at 4 p.m. with
the Wolverines far in front.
Al Karpinski and Bill Barclay
rounded out the Michigan team that
met the Boilermakers and both added
to the victors' point total. In the
opening match Kocsis and Malloy
won from Lockwood and Smith, 3-0.
Completing the morning round
Saunders and Karpinski defeated
Dovelvower and David, 2% to 1/2.
In the afternoon Kocsis turned in
his near-par score to shut out his op-
ponent 3 to 0. The Michigan captain
was playing Pete Smith who shot a
77, and then Saunders tied Lockwood,
11/2 to 11/2. In the other two singles
matches Karpinski defeated David,
2-1, and Bill Barclay tied Freese,
Frosh Diamond
Squad Boasts
Several Stars
Peckinpaugh Heads List
Of Prospective Varsity
Baseball Material
Sixty-seven men have reported to
Benny Oosterbaan, freshman base-
ball-coach, and among the group are
several that should put up a good
fight for positions on Ray Fisher's
Varsity team next year,
Wally Peckinpaugh, who came to
Michigan with a reputation as a high-
class athlete, and who has already
won numerals in football and bas-
ketball, heads the list of potential
infielders. Wally is stationed at the
hot corner of the diamond and
handles chances like a veteran. He
has a fast peg and has been hitting
with regularity.
Earl Smith, of Ann Arbor, appears
to be about the best short-stop on
the squad. Earl has been playing
ball on local amateur teams for the
past three years and exhibits fre-
quent flashes of form that are al-
most spectacular. Smitty covers the
territory in back of second base ex-
ceptionally well and can travel quite
a distance to snag pop flies. He can
also place hits better than the average
Other infielders who have shown
themselves to be of better than aver-
age ability include Dick Long at first,
Irvin Lisagor and Babson at second,
with Pete Poulos as a promising utility
Al DuBois and Gideon look to be
about the brightest mound pros-
pects, followed closely by Coon. Du-
Bois has a snappy fast ball and a
slow curve that are hard for a batter

to keep his eye on. Gideon plays
first base as well as pitching.
Only two outfielders are above or-
dinary, Bob Barber and Dworsky.
Both can cover a lot of ground in
patrolling the pastures and have good
throwing arms.

)ETROIT the Dynamic has outdone
itself this time to maintain its
claim as the City of Champions, now
producing the latest world's heavy-
weight champion-of-the-month in Al:
(Is He Man or Is He Beast?) Baba
who the other night threw Dick Shi-
kat, then recognized as the champior
of the world in New York, Michigan
Columbus, O., and Albuquerque, N. M
Ali Baba now is in competition wit
Dan Koloff, champion of the world ir
Paris; Everett Marshall, world cham-
pion by official decree of the Governo
of Colorado; Dan O'Mahoney, wh
has a legal claim to the title in Fitch-
burg, Mass., because he was tricke
into the loss of the crown March 2
when Shikat broke his contract b
pinning the dead-panned Dutchman
and Vincent Lopez, world champior
of the Golden Gate and Los An-
In between these isolated geo-
graphical positions are locally-
reccgnized world champions in-
cluding Ray Steele, who can
probably take any of them in a
match not directed by Jack Kur-
Iey (nee Herman Schul) and his
wrestling trust.
The whole set-up but emphasize
one point, professional wrestling
claim to recognition as a sport rest
on the same plane as the antics o
the talented Marx brothers.
Marx *
LI BABA has a career which rival
that of his famous namesake
woh had dealings with the Fort
Thieves, you remember. Two year
ago in Oakland, Calif., Ai was Harr:
Ekezian, an Armenial wrestler of sort
who was having a tough time making
his living.
Not long ago Adam Weismuller,
the Detroit promoter, wrote to a
friend in Oakland asking that he
send a Jap for appearance in
Herr Weismuller's Michigan cir-
cuit. Instead the friend sent
along Ekezian, whose shaven
head and long moustache appeale
to the Detroiter.
Ali got his big chance last week it
an appearance against Shikat, wh
had crossed O'Mahoney into cur
rendering his crown, and whether Al
crossed Mr. Shikat, or whether Mr
Shikat surrendered his ill-gotten titl
or whether Mr. Shikat just wasn'
so hot, Ali Baba is now world's cham-
pion around these parts, "much t
the surprise of his friends in Oakland
Calif," as the Associated Press reports
who had evidently watched his wres-
tling more than the beautiful mous-
tache while he was on the coast.

PERHAPS some readers may get th
impression that we do not con-
sider wrestling a serious sporting con-
test. That is right. But as an ex-
hibition to compete with the brother
Marx, that is different.
Ali Baba really appeals to us,
especially after talking with an
inhabitant of the Detroit rooming
house where Ali lives with sev-
eral other members of Detroit
Local Number 1, Professional
Wrestlers of America.
Ali, it seems, is a very sensitiv
personality, playing the violin (be-
tween his knees) with such ability
that he wants a place on Majo
Bowes' hour, because he can sing, too
if he gets the gong for his violin play-
His home life is very serene, w
understand, despite the violin and the
f act that the janitor gives him a
thorough dressing-down each weel
for failing to change his linen. The
latter doesn't bother him, you see
for Ali sleeps on the floor.

Captain Larson Will Pitch'
Against Wally Roettger's
Visiting Illini Saturday z
John Gee and Herm Fishman, the!
two southpaw hurling stars on Michi-
gan's title seeking baseball nine, will
go after another win at 4 p.m. today
when the Wolverines clash with
Michigan Normal on the Ypsilanti
Both of these men possess season
records of two victories and no de-
feats and will divide this afternoon's
work between them, the one giving
the best performance to be held in
reserve Saturday when Capt. Berger
Larson twirls against the visiting
Illini of Wally Roettger. Gee will
probably throw the first five innings
today with the Detroit sophomore
finishing the encounter.
Seven Won; Three Lost
To date the Wolverines have won
seven games and lost three and by
Saturday should have annexed two
more wins. The Ypsilanti aggregation
will face Michigan on Ferry Field
Friday afternoon.
It is expected that the highly
vaunted Michigan offense, which
didn't function against the Badgers'
Gordon O'Brien, will click against
the Hurons. The Michigan twirler
who has the most trouble in dispos-
ing with Ypsi today will face them
again at the end of the week.
Coach Fisher is spending most of
his time this week in preparing the
club for Saturday's all-important tilt
with Illinois here. He sent the squad
through a short intra-squad game
yesterday which was cust short by
Aces To Meet
It will be Berger La son against
Hale Swanson when the Illini and
Wolverines do meet, and the fans
will be treated to the spectacle of two
of the Big Ten's outstanding pitch-
ers fighting it out on the hill. Illinois
has won five straight Conference
games and through the season has
dropped but one start, that to Notre
Dame, 5-4. In reserve the Illini will
have another star thrower, Howie
Berg, who will be called into action if
Michigan starts belting Swanson's
Larson's first start of the season be-
fore local fans last Saturday was an
auspicious one in that he disposed of
11 Badgers via the strike out route
and yielded but six hits. The Michi-
gan leader will depend on his sharp
breaking curve ball, mixed with a
half speeder and a good fast one, to
give Illinois its first Conference de-
j nandingj

Southpaws Who W ill Face Normal

Coach Johnstone Well Pleased
With Showing Of Court Tea m


Michigan Normal's baseball team will get its fill of southpaw
pitching this afternoon when it entertains the Michigan club on the
college diamond in Ypsilanti. John Gee (left) and Herm Fishman are
slated to divide the hurling duties for Coach Ray Fisher's nine with the
elongated Gee probably getting the call to start the affair. So far this
season both men have won two games and have received no setbacks.
